dignity of human


Some Japanese men, they have tendency to sexual orientation to child, and many Japanese people do not think about child pornography.
Now, Japanese dignity of sex for children, it comes to a head.

Some girls; if they want to make money, they take some picture of their own nude and sell those. And some Japanese men buy those.
It is very risky thing, and I think this thing lead up to Traffic in people.

Because those Japanese people are unaware of human’s dignity. and they don’t notice that they live off the backs of human’s dignity.

I think they have to study sex education, but sex education can’t do in school. Why? Because Japanese government’s member, they made to stop it.They said “every teacher teach children pleasure of sex act in it”.
So it was made to stop.
I was feeling strong misogynous when sex education can’t do in school.

Expansion of Internets' user, girls would increase that them sell their own nude and also men buy those.
Today, in Internets' world, there are girls that selling their own nude.
Many people are indifferent to it.

It is very bad actuality in Japan.

I have read a lot about the

I have read a lot about the issue of child pornography in Japan, and it’s refreshing to hear from someone within the country talking about the problem. Thanks so much for sharing !

I was a bit surprised to learn possession of child pornography is not illegal there, but more shocked to learn ruling party halted legislation that would make it illegal on the grounds of ‘freedom of expression’. Everyone just loves to use ‘freedom of expression’ as the core argument and avoid responsibility.

I understand what you mean by the apparent obliviousness of general public about this issue. Although the gov has a lot of power in disseminating educational material and raising awareness but people can empower themselves. I am guessing it’s an issue that divides the country? Too many opinions or apathy? Do you think Pop-culture plays a role - music videos ? because I am wondering why young girls are encouraged.

I am also wondering how many politicians themselves buy child pornography !

you're welcome

the intellects discuss the issue, and they warn about the issue but gov don't move now.
Pop-culture's issue is complicated, because Japanese Pop-culture make people to be unaware about child pornography and girls to sell their body.

Freedom of expression, it is disguise. I think so.
